which was hit back in october of 2007. bob pisani runs through the sectors leading the rally early on today. bob? >> important thing is what's happened is while we're not at new high, we're close enough. a number of sector, bill, are already essentially at historic highs. a mix of the defensive and cyclic cal naal names. essentially at or near historic highs. there's a group that's kind of in the middle, bill, that hit historic highs in 2008 and are just off of them. just below them about 10%. that's the utility stocks and the energy stocks and the materials stocks are just off of their historic highs but heading in the right direction, at least. finally, here's the really tough one, these are the guys that have never gotten close. telecom stocks and the tech stocks were destroyed in the dot com bubble in 2000 and essentially have never gotten close back to old historic highs. 50% off. financials got destroyed in the financial crisis of 2008. they never really got all the way back. here's the problem, bill. financials and tech are the two biggest weightings in the s&p 500. they're
right now along with hank is jason pride, peter schiff of euro pacific capital and our own bob pisani. peter schiff, let me kick it off with you and get your take on what's going on in cyprus right now. what's the impact? >> a lot of people are hoping what happens in cyprus stays in cyprus. i wouldn't be so sure. i think bank depositors including depositors here in the united states have to be concerned about the value of their deposits. because if we have a major bank failure in the united states, you know, there's no way the fdic has the money to cover the potential losses. so we would have to have a huge bailout like t.a.r.p. and where would the money come from? and even if there is a bailout and the fed has to print money, the losses to depositors to inflation will be far greater than what the cyprus depositors are losing due to this tax. >> hank smith, it is pretty extraordinary depositors have to pay for a bailout they didn't necessarily authorize. what do you think about what peter said? is this a recipe that would be used elsewhere in the world? >> i highly down it, maria. loo
